Photo Gallery: The Comeback, CalArts Style

After being off-campus for most of 2020 and 2021, students, faculty, and staff slowly returned to in-person performances, art-making, and social gatherings during the fall 2021 semester. As the year progressed, a semblance of normalcy returned, and by April and May of 2022, CalArts buzzed with activity once again, with students creating work with fervor around every corner of campus and beyond.
